Popular U.S cryptocurrency exchange Gemini is focusing its latest partnership on educating students on all things blockchain and cryptocurrency-related.
The latest partnership featuring the Gemini exchange benefits students who want to learn more about the cryptocurrency industry. Popular Bitcoin maximalists and twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have partnered their cryptocurrency exchange with Learn & Earn.
Bringing Crypto Education to the Youth
The partnership is the first of its kind that caters directly to students. Learn & Earn is described as the first app that helps kids become investors, funded by parents and sponsors. The app currently offers courses in various financial sectors. However, the latest partnership will now feature sponsored crypto courses from Gemini.
The cryptocurrency market and the financial industry can be extremely overwhelming for anyone to get into. But Learn & Earn and Gemini are looking to bridge the gap between knowledge and financial education within the crypto industry. The partnership will see one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges making its foray into student education.
This is another push for adoption within the industry. It is not apparent as of yet if students will be able to earn cryptocurrencies for completing courses. However, they will be able to earn rewards to invest in their portfolios.
Partnership to Grow Crypto Education
Global head of Business Development at Gemini, David Abner commented on the partnership. He expressed his excitement that Gemini has for being able to teach students about the industry. He stated:
“We are proud to be working with Learn & Earn and are excited to foster crypto education in younger generations.”
Walter Cruttenden of Learn & Earn also commented on the partnership:
“We’re excited to partner with Gemini, and Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. Courses on cryptocurrency are important. Gemini is a great partner.”
Learn & Earn has grown in popularity as it offers students of all ages the opportunity to participate in short courses related to fintech, finance, and investing. Students are then rewarded for completing the courses. The rewards are then distributed into a personalized investment account. This includes the opportunity to invest in fractional shares of some of the largest companies in the world, such as Apple, Netflix, and Tesla.
All funds saved will go towards tertiary education in the future.
Gemini Growth Continues
The initiative sees Gemini exchange open its doors to mass adoption among the younger generation. Something that has not been possible until now.
Gemini has grown dramatically over the last several months. And in just two months, it has reached over $1 billion in crypto earning interest on the exchange.
